The function processes the creation, copying, pasting and other commands when working with AutoCAD objects - dimensions, text, multileaders, hatching, tables, viewports - and sets the layer specified in the function settings for them. There is an option to specify the specified layers for the selected objects


Enable/Disable - enable/disable the function in the current drawing.

Set the layers


The group contains drop-down lists for selecting a layer for each specific object. The lists are filled with the names of the layers installed in this drawing. When choosing Default layer current layer of drawing will be assigned to the object. If the installed layer is then removed from the drawing, the object will be assigned a default layer.
The demo version of the function allows you to install auto layers only for dimensions and hatching

Excluding commands


On this tab you can edit (add or remove) a list of commands to exclude from processing a function.
The standard command set for exclusion is not editable!
